    Contemplating on upgrades

    Okay here's what I want to upgrade (it will take me maybe 1-1/2 years to do all this/ get money and I'm just asking which order I should do all this)

    UTEC
    midpipe
    uppipe
    downpipe
    IC hoses

    thats maybe 2200$? rought est.

    I was thinking about doing the utec first, but then I've heard that you should do exhaust first, i'm sure either is fine but what do yall think?

    You can do either first.... I did exhaust then UTEC which if your going to get and pay for a dyno tune might not be a bad idea as the exhaust will require significant changes to your map... do the IC hoses whenever as they wont change the map and are really only to look nice nad maybe provide some reliability...

    Also some downpipes and midpipes are one in the same ala the perrin... either way do the up & down at the same time since you have to take the down off to do the up.

    per run, $50. you'll need a few.

    do uppipe and DP at the same time, otherwise, you'll get double hit for the same labor.

    do the UTEC last so you don't need to retune and pay twice for the dyno runs.

    if you stick with the specific txs stage components the standard stage maps will work just fine without a dyno run. when you get up to a stage 4 is where there are going to be significant gains from a dyno run.

    with that said, if you are not sticking to the specific stage components you car will benefit from dyno runs.

    i am currently running a stage 4 car on the standard map without any problems.
